Earth horns with electronic drone
Label: EM Records
Out of stock
Triple LP version of the entire 162-minute performance -- the vinyl
version therefore contains approx 85 additional minutes of music. Yoshi Wada and EM Records presents the first-ever, world-premiere release of Earth Horns With Electronic Drone,
recorded live in 1974. Combining four of Wada's self-made "pipehorns"
(made from plumbing materials, over three meters in length), with an
electronic drone tuned to the electrical current of the performance
space, this is a lost masterpiece of early minimalism, placing Wada
rightfully in the pantheon with La Monte Young, Phill Niblock, Maryanne Amacher and Alvin Lucier.
Recorded live in Syracuse, New York, this recording captures the
room-filling complex overtones generated by the ever-shifting interplay
of the breathing horns and the constant electronic drone.
